Playing video games on the BIG screen
 
A news helicopter doing a flyover of the stadium complex in Kansas City caught employees playing Mario Kart on the Crown Vision screen at Royals Stadium.

I'm not much a video game player but that would be freakin' awesome!

Good thing they weren't watching porn on that thing!

When Doom came out, someone was caught playing it on a projector in a police station. IIRC they were using the chainsaw at the time... :D

...been there, done that :) We once played Goldeneye on the big screen of this stadium. At the time it was the highlight of my career!

The fundraiser explanation rings true. We have AGDQ after all. Why not raffle off some tickets to be able to play games on the big screen?

Yeah, but terrible refresh rate.

The delay on those things must make game playing nearly impossible.

Also are they led or lcd? If not there would be horrible screen burn after a while.........

OMG! Sign me up. I'd totally play Mario Karts on a screen that big. I occasionally play it using our projector, but that can't hold a candle to screen in that news story.
